Meet Our Veterinarians

J. Wesley Chapin, DVM

Dr. J. Wesley Chapin grew up on his family’s farm in upstate New York.  He received his Bachelor of Science degree from North Dakota State University and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Iowa State University.

Dr. Wes Chapin began his career in a mixed animal practice, but found his focus in small animal medicine and surgery.  He joined the Broadview Animal Hospital team in 2005 and became an owner of the practice in 2008.

He is passionate about soft tissue and orthopedic surgery and has completed the North American Principles of Fracture Management course.  He has also been specially trained to perform Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) surgery.

Dr. Chapin is currently a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the New Hampshire Veterinary Medical Association and the Veterinary Study Groups Organization.

He enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, building, fly fishing and taking care of his three dogs, three cats, chickens, rabbits and flock of Romney sheep.


Melissa Kinnison, DVM

Dr. Kinnison was born in Colorado and then moved to Milton, New Hampshire at the age of thirteen. Soon thereafter, she became a volunteer at the Milton Veterinary Clinic, where she witnessed a Caesarean section being performed. She was so inspired that she decided to pursue veterinary medicine as a career.

She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Wilson College in Pennsylvania and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Michigan State University.  She practiced at two other animal hospitals in New England before joining our team in 2007.

Dr. Kinnison appreciates all aspects of medicine and surgery but has particular interest in dermatology and internal medicine. She also has strong interest in small mammals, or what we refer to as “pocket pets”.

She aspires to learn more about animal behavior and how to make nervous patients less stressed at their visits to our hospital.  Dr. Kinnison states that she “truly loves being able to participate in the human-animal bond. I also love fixing a problem and being able to enhance that animal’s life.”

Dr. Kinnison and her husband, Dave, have two children, named Matt and Emily.  She and her family love to travel together in their camper.  She also enjoys hiking, gardening and reading.  Her furry family members include a Beagle mix named Casey, and a cat named Jiminy.
